I will serve as your facilitator and will work with you to take responsibility for your learning processes and work. You will learn how to perform research for your case studies and discussion topics using the World Wide Web and your text. I develop my classes with the assumption that We are all Life Time Learners and that adults learn better if they are part of the learning process itself. In order to succeed in this course, the student must first and foremost be in class for all meetings. The student must conscientiously prepare for class by reading the text prior to class. Taking notes on the reading would also be to the student's benefit. The student must be prepared to answer questions and solve problems as well as cases in class. The student must also satisfactorily complete all examinations and homework in the class. All methods of teaching are designed to transfer new material by clarifying and emphasizing subject areas presented in the text. The lecture relies on the fact that you have read the assigned material and have completed any assignment relating to it. We can take this learning and find situation to apply the new knowledge.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Class Assessment: A mid term, class participation, a research paper and a comprehensive, closed book/notes proctored final exam covering the Core Learning Objectives.
Research paper/presentation: Students are required to turn in a research report of not less that 8 pages (double spaced, 12 font) in a research paper format. The project should be within the sphere of a specific labor relations or union/company strategy and approved by the instructor. An oral and digital presentation with handouts to the class, not to exceed 15 minutes, of the report's high points and solution is also required for each student. You need a minimum of two references from printed material other that your text and two references from the Internet. The research grade will be based on logic, depth of analysis, ability to relate the subject to the text and your other sources.
Case: Students are required to turn in a case analysis report. The instructor will assign a case to each student during the third class period. The report is due during week six. A report publication guideline used by this instructor is MLA, Park's standard. You need a minimum of two references from printed material other that your text and two references from the Internet. The case analysis grade will be based on logic, depth of analysis, ability to relate the subject to the text and your other sources.
TOTAL = 100% (1000 points)
The course grade for students will be based on the overall average of homework and tests taken during the course in accordance with the weighting of the various requirements as stated in the syllabus.
All final exams in all School of Business courses will be comprehensive and will be closed book and closed notes. They will constitute 30% of the total course grade and will not be a take-home exam. They will be completed during the test week in the period designated by the registrar or by the Proctor in the case online courses. If calculators are allowed, they will not be multifunctional electronic devices that include features such as: phones, cameras, instant messaging, pagers, and so forth. Electronic Computers will not be allowed on final exams unless an exception is made by the Dean of the School of Business.
